Old Magic in Everyday Life by Mhari Simon


This book is about the magic Mhairi met as a child in Scotland, where the old ways of country life were competing with the new technology, new society and new opportunities.
Stories of horse husbandry, animal healing and growing up with extraordinary abilities with living creatures are mixed delightfully with humour, questions and opinions. Moving beyond mere history, she offers the possibility that many people could do more than they think, connecting to the natural world and exerting more influence for good.
In a journey around the spiritual aspect of life, she compares traditional with modern, scientific with intuitive, consumerism with consideration. Her great honesty offers many chances for the reader to say “Yes I wondered that too”, to question whether the world has to be the way it is, and to find new answers for personal progress. She ends up with a collection of exercises to help anyone who wishes to explore their inner being to re-find their natural place in the world.
At the meeting point of two cultures where life and death, progress and stability, and identity and anxiety all swirl and mingle, she has an opportunity to be more than a just a bridge…
